Brake Pad Inspection

How Long Do BMW Brake Pads Last?

The lifespan of your brake pads will depend on your driving habits and the brake pads you’ve chosen. If you have your vehicle’s brakes inspected at least once per year, you’ll stay on top of brake pad maintenance.

You can even inspect your brake pads yourself since they’re visible through the spokes in the wheel. If the pads are less than a quarter-inch thick, you should have them replaced as soon as possible.

In general, most brake pads will need a replacement by the 50,000-mile mark. Still, you should watch for signs that your vehicle needs brake service earlier than that interval.

BMW M Performance Brakes

BMW offers high-performance braking systems designed for sporty, dynamic driving styles. You’ll find them on the BMW M Series: a lineup of performance sedans, coupes, convertibles, and Sport Activity Vehicles® ready to take on the track.

If you drive one of these high-powered thrill rides, you can equip it with BMW M Compound Brakes—the standard set of M brakes—or available Carbon Ceramic Brakes. These brakes provide the stopping power you’ll need to rein in those BMW M TwinPower Turbo engines.

The M Series now features an integrated braking system—a first for BMW. You can configure it to brake more or less aggressively depending on where you drive.
